Film | Studio Tour with Emma Ward
Today we take a walk through Emma Ward’s eclectic art studio, ‘Meraki’, which translated from Greek means ‘to do something with soul, creativity or love; to put something of yourself into your work’. Here, we get an inside look at how Emma’s creative aesthetic takes place as she walks us through her Fig Tree Collection, an ode to the beautiful, historic Banyan figs that we know and love. We also learn about her creative process of making natural pigments. Emma Ward works in the Rockhampton region, with a predominant focus on exploring femininity and the human condition through various media.
